Loud party, search warrant, tickets

Officers were sent to a loud house party in the 500 block of North 10th Avenue East shortly after midnight today.  Police had been there already twice this school year for other parties.  Tenants refused to open the door so, a search warrant was obtained based on evidence of underage drinking.  45 underage consumption tickets were written and four social host tickets for the renters.  We will be following up with the landlord on Monday as well.

We have had great success in party call reduction due to many factors.  A couple of them involved he social host ordinance (fine amount is $500) and   UMD accesses the names of students who were cited for underage and takes action.  There are a number of other action items that have helped reduce the number of loud parties by 30%-50% in various neighborhoods.

College parties are not what they used to be.....
